I bought these in satin black for my 2012 JK. I mounted 35" tires on them and they are setting in my garage. I hope to get them on by the end of the week when my lift gets installed. The Rugged Ridge site says they have a 12mm offset that I think equates to a 4.5" backspace. The wheels should fit your JK.

Pretty sure 12mm offset is 5" bs on a 9" wheel. Not that it makes much difference. They'll fit fine if that's what you get.

I prefer a new wheel over the spacers. Spacers require additional maintenance to make sure that they don't come off and I don't want to mess with that. I don't know if spacers cause additional axle wear over just the wheels or not, but it is something to look into.

I think the wheels are made in China. I didn't know that until after I purchased them and saw a sticker on the wheel that said "China" on it. I prefer made in USA, but so much stuff is made outside of this country now, it is hard to buy anything not made in China.

Nice Jeep. Those wheels really look good on it. I got the Satin Black ones setting in my garage until I can get my lift installed. I'm really looking forward to seeing what they look like on the Jeep. One nice thing about these wheels is that you don't see them a lot. It makes your Jeep even more unique looking. I see all kinds of Pro Comp wheels in my area, but I haven't seen any Rugged Ridge wheels. I don't know if the word hasn't gotten out about these wheels, but with them being great looking and a hubcentric design, how can you go wrong with them.

Can't remember if it's China or Taiwan but you'll be hard pressed to find any aluminum wheels made in the USA anymore. There is actually a shortage on wheels right now and quite a few brands have been on back order for a while.

The Rugged Ridge Silver Powdercoated wheels are on back order but the other 3 finishes are available.

I can believe that there is a shortage on wheels. When I purchased my Satin Black wheels, they were on back order too. I waited almost 8 weeks to get them.

It's not just RR. Most companies get there wheels from one of a handful of manufactures in China and that's where the delay is right now.

I just bought five...they normally come with a 5 back space, but if you call Jason at Rebel Off Road, he can get them with a 4.5 back space!!!

These wheels look great! Is this the Silver or Chrome finish? I have a 2013 Rock Lobster and I'm hoping the Silver wouldn't look like too much bling.
